10 Light sources for OCT Continuous sources SLD/LED/superfluorescent fibers, center wavelength; 800 nm (SLD), 1300 nm (SLD, LED), 1550 nm, (LED, fiber), power: 1 to 10 mw (c.w.) is sufficient, coherence length; 10 to 15 mm (typically), Pulsed lasers mode-locked Ti:Al2O3 (800 nm), 3 micron axial resolution (or less).

11 Superluminescent diodes (SLDs) Definition: broadband semiconductor light sources based on superluminescence (Acronym: SLD) Superluminescent diodes (also sometimes called superluminescence diodes or superluminescent LEDs) are optoelectronic semiconductor devices which are emitting broadband optical radiation based on superluminescence. They are similar to laser diodes, containing an electrically driven p-n junction and an optical waveguide, but lack optical feedback, so that no laser action can occur. Optical feedback, which could lead to the formation of cavity modes and thus to pronounced structures in the spectrum and/or to spectral narrowing, is suppressed by means of tilting the output facet relative to the waveguide, and can be suppressed further with anti-reflection coatings. Superluminescence: amplified spontaneous emission
